Embossing x 2

I am submitting this belated birthday card to:

Joan's Gardens Challenge - use 2 embossing folders, 2 die cuts, a sentiment, glitter or pearls
Last But Not Least Challenge - use embossing

Here's what I used to make this card:
- Swiss Dots border folder, Leafy Branch folder (a fav of mine) (*2 embossing folders)
- lightly inked the branch and leaves with Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme
- lightly inked the dots with Brilliance Pearlescent Sunflower Yellow
- attached a piece of white ric rac ribbon to separate the embossing
- used T.H. Tattered Florals to cut Bo Bunny paper into flowers (*1 die cut)
- curled and distressed the petals. glued layers together with Glossy Accents
- added a gem surrounded by copper stickles for my glitter (* glitter)
- attached a banner under the large flower with the sentiment (* 2nd die cut & sentiment)

- cuttlebug/provocraft e.f.; Tsukineko Dew Drop ink; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Tim Holtz Alterations die by Sizzix; Bo Bunny paper; Ranger Stickles & Glossy Accents
